My name is Linda L. Sack of Arise To Zion Ministries and this teaching is a result of a vision and a command by God to bring forth these truths to His people who are as yet uninformed as to the various problems with food in today’s society…particularly, America’s. There is physical and spiritual poison in our food! It is actually demonically driven. . .stay with me and I will make my case!
We know that THE WORD OF GOD IS THE HANDBOOK FOR A HUMAN BEING. Application of the Word of God will keep a person healthy and prosperous in his spirit and soul and body. Every facet of man is interwoven and cannot be ministered to separately-nor should it be attempted.
Our food is important first because we are the 3rd Temple made without hands which God has made and has chosen to put His Spirit into…we have the indwelling of the Ruach Kodesh. Now His Laws are on our inward parts! Secondly, we should not cooperate with the enemy who has shown evil men how to incorporate poison into our food supply.
We CAN find reasons within the Word of YaHoVaH why we CANNOT eat foods that have GMOs in them.
This premise is the foundation of this teaching because we are to go to the Word of God for all of our questions and to get all of our directions for life. Since we are in the End Times and there are plagues and pestilences that are manifesting we would do well to search out the Word on the subject
We all know that the world system is of the evil one and we are in the world but are not of it so it is important that we do not allow ourselves to continue to remain ignorant of the things of it which can be polluting our Bodily Temples, because WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT! The Feast of Tabernacles is fulfilled in that we are the temporary dwelling place which in the Hebrew celebration of the Feast is called a sukkah. WE ARE the sukkah! Praise God! THAT is a whole other teaching…so let me not digress from the topic.
In 2005, I had a Divine Encounter with God. He showed me the evil of Genetically Modified Organisms and I realized how it was one more way that Satan wanted to “stand in God’s place an be called God”. Man is creating new “Life Forms” and they are actually patenting them. It is the truest form of evil. Of course, they have not created life forms at all but what they have done is to defile YaH’s creation.
As I have tried to inform Believers regarding GMOs and how they are incorporated into the American diet I have gotten the same response over and over again, “I pray over my food-so it’s all good.” Yes, God says that even if we are eating poison, He can protect us. But He will not bless something that HE calls profane.
Stay with me here because I am going to show you exactly where you can find these things out in His Word.
That is the prelude which sets the stage for this teaching which I call…
Christians/Kingdom Citizens Cannot Eat Foods That Have Been Offered To Idols!
So, what does God say about Created LIFE? Well, first of all, we know that when HE was doing the creating HE called it GOOD. (In studying the Bible the rule of first mention can be applied here so that the best definition of the word Good is something God created.)
1 Timothy 4:1-5 (KJV)
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
Look closely at verse 4 where we see that every creature of God is good… This is expressly stating that what God created is good for food. The genetic crossing of life forms is not of God and He did not create theses new “life forms”. These are an abomination unto Him!
YaHoVaH’s Word says that everything He made is good for food and He did NOT make GMOs. So, if God does not make it and it is offered for food should we simply pray over it and stuff it down? NO!!! This would be co-operating with the enemy which is the spirit of this world, in his efforts to slowly kill us. Yes! These GMOs are killing us and it will continue to get worse.
Do you know that we are in the midst of a famine of sorts? Well, the foods that Americans eat are empty of nutrition and minerals. When you eat a meal your stomach may be full and your taste buds were stimulated due to the neurological additives incorporated into the food, but your body is sorely lacking. It is actually starving to death for nutrients. It begins to go into starvation mode and thereby stores all fats from the food into the body.
When I was a young student in the Word, I thought it was extremely important to understand the 4 things that The Holy Spirit revealed to the apostles and prophets regarding what things the Gentiles had to adhere to of the Hebraic Laws. Let’s look at some passages which lead up to the Council meeting when they sought the Lord for direction concerning Gentiles:
Acts 10:28 (KJV)
28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
This is the understanding Peter gained from the entire trance and his experience with Cornelius and his men and family. Please notice that Peter remarks that it is an unlawful thing…but God does not have any double mindedness. and so that cannot be the Law of HIS, but a law that the Sanhedrin was enforcing.
So we see here that the Holy Spirit bare witness with Barnabas who was sent to investigate the matter. Peter and his companions who travelled with him were indeed led by the Holy Spirit to go to the Gentiles at the home of Cornelius! AND they did indeed get the Baptism of the Ruach Kodesh! (HOLY SPIRIT) (Jeremiah 16:19, Isaiah 11:10, 42:1, 6, 49:6, 22, 60:3, 61:9, 66:19, Mal. 1:11, Amos 9:10,11, are some verses where we see the prophetic promise that the Gentiles would also share in the salvation of God and know Him.)
So now the leaders of the Hebrew believers, the Apostles and Prophets, were in a dilemma as to whether or not the Gentiles would have to become circumcised, conform to all other Mosaic Laws of the Hebrews or were they exempt? God wanted the Gentile believers to be discipled correctly and so they sought the Lord for guidance. New believers need discipleship and teaching to establish them and they wanted to be sure before they put Laws on them that were not required by God to do, at least not by force and not all at once either.
So they held a Council Meeting to inquire of the Holy Spirit. Let’s read what happened:
|Ac 15:20||But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.|
How is someone polluted from idols? What is a food that has been offered to idols? Halel meats are offered to the god of Islam. Have no part in these. Where are they being sold? In many markets all over the U.S. (some Walmarts).
Also, foods centered around or servicing pagan holidays. . .
In 1998, I was in the puppet ministry at the Christian Retreat Family Church in Bradenton, FL. I was asked by leadership to go up to the store and pick up some candy for the children as we were almost out of it and they were giving it as a reward for co-operation and right answers in Sunday school.
I went up to the local Supermarket and it was just after Easter so there was a table with Easter candy which was discounted by 50%. I reached out my hand to pick up a bag of chocolates and the Holy Spirit spoke to me very clearly, “That food has been offered to idols, do not even touch it.” I gasped and jerked my hand back!
A lady standing next to me also gasped and asked, “What? Was it a roach?”
I answered, “No…the Holy Spirit just told me that this food has been offered to idols and to not even touch it.” I had tears slide down my cheeks and I was actually “dumbstruck”.
She said, “I have a witness to that in my spirit that you are telling me the Truth. I also am a Christian, a Pastor’s wife at the church down the street…”
She exclaimed, “Oh MY! I never understood that verse! NOW I am going to have to really pray about this.”
“I know. It changes so much for me! I have asked Him about that many times because the four laws we need to adhere to as Gentiles is very important!” I answered.
We stood there and prayed together this Pastor and I. God has revealed many other things about foods since that day…BECAUSE I WANT TO BE OBEDIENT !! AFTER ALL, our obedience is our show of affection to our LORD!!!
Foods that are centered around a pagan holiday are foods that are offered to idols.
Now, let’s look at GMOs…
GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS, GMOs, ARE FOODS OFFERED TO IDOLS !!!
When we look at the science of Bio-Technology and what they are attempting to do in laboratories all over the world, we as Kingdom Citizens MUST see how evil it is that these people are playing God by the power of little “g” gods, (evil spirits). They are offering these experiments to people as food.
They are not only crossing animals with plants, but are crossing animals with genes from human beings! The horrors of this are evidenced by scientists who have left the field of genetics because the lines were crossed for their sensibilities of moral and faith based ideologies.
You may be telling yourself that you do not eat genetically engineered foods so you don’t need to worry about this. You are more than likely wrong. Genetically engineered products are incorporated into 82% of all conventional foods sold in America. AND the whore, the FDA, does not require the labeling of GMO or gen foods on our packaging! Are you outraged yet? You should be!
Let me explain something; God says in the Book of Leviticus 19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.
Mingling seed? This seems so much worse than what some people have argued with me. They say that it means not to grow corn and wheat in the same plot of land. THAT is absurd. This verse is clearly speaking of mixing kinds of things together. He hates this. What do you think He feels about having you eat what these scientists are producing?
What do you think He is going to do to those who mix animals and plants for food! One is on the outside of man the other invades the Bodily Temple of the Holy Spirit!
And again, another verse to show the importance of going to natural foods and organically grown foods: Revelation 18:4 (KJV) 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
What is a Kingdom Citizen to eat? We MUST eat organically because so far it is illegal for food processors to use GMO or gen foods in products labeled organic. However, even that can be tricky with some processed foods.
You see evil corporations have also bought up some of the Organic Processing companies and they are trying to infiltrate the industry by corrupting it and frustrating those who are trying to honor God in their diet. So they use terms like “All natural” “with Organic ingredients”. Instead of: ALL ORGANIC INGREDIENTS. There is also now a recognized label we can look for which guarantees that there are not GMO ingredients in the food: Non-GMO Project Verified. God is making a way where there seems to be no way in this. The following chart makes for easy understanding and helps us recall the facts.
Now if you are reading about this for the first time then you are probably incredulous and maybe you even think I am a “Henny Penny” who is running around declaring that the sky is falling and when you look up the sky looks clear and beautiful…
The truth is that it is even worse than all of that! There are neurological and chemical poisons in our food also! Dr. Russell Blaylock a world renowned Neurosurgeon and a devout Spirit-filled Christian has been blowing the whistle on the Food Processing Industry for years. His trail-blazing fact filled teachings have been invaluable for the Body of Messiah to keep themselves out of the poisonous cycle of conventional processed foods.
In 1996, he wrote a book called, “Excitotoxins, The Taste That Kills.” MSG, and all the derivative forms of glutamates which kill brain cells and are in most processed foods in America have been exposed through his book.
Other researched areas of interest which he has brought forth are that there is fluoride being added to the water systems in America. He describes how studies by neuro-scientists have been ignored, these very scientists who try to warn people are being discredited, fired, and are losing their grants, their laboratories and their property.
Please take a moment to pray about the information I have just given you, I hope you will search this out and discover God’s understanding for your life and your family’s.
“YaHoVaH, Our Heavenly Father, we ask You O Elohim, to lead us into all truth. We are Your children and we desire to do Your will. We do not want the diseases that have been allowed to be put on non-believers as You have declared in Your Word! We know that the world system is evil and we are not of the world but we are living in it at this time. We ask You to show us how to avoid poisonous foods and foods that have been offered to idols. We know that the whole of creation is groaning for the Sons of God to come forth! We ask that you show us how to proceed. In the Name of Y’shua, we pray. Amen.”
